Therma Marine (TMI) has ordered a barge-mounted 54 MW / 32 MWh energy storage system to be delivered by Wärtsilä on an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) basis.
The Wärtsilä barge will be placed next to TMI’s existing thermal power barge of a total of 100 MW in the municipality of Maco in the province of Davao de Oro. The project will be handled on a fast-track basis, with delivery scheduled to be completed in Q4 2021.
This will be the first ever deployment of a floating energy storage solution in the South East Asia region. It will involve placing ten Wärtsilä GridSolv Max systems, supported by the company’s advanced GEMS energy management platform, aboard a floating barge. The solution will provide flexibility for TMI in their ancillary service contract with the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines.
Wärtsilä’s GridSolv Max is an advanced energy storage solution that is designed for streamlined installation and integration, significantly increasing energy density and system reliability to meet customer energy needs while also adequately future-proofing their hardware assets.
